Rather than fly to a vacation destination and avoid the hassle and expense of air travel we have chosen to explore other options eight hours or less away from home by car.
This led us to book a couple of weeks in Hilton Head South Carolina. The first week we stayed in a timeshare resort The Cottages At Shipyard owne dby the Spinnaker Resort Chain.
Essentially we had a two bedroom town house located in an area surrounded by palm trees, and lush greenery. Our back porch fronted on a lagoon and there are miles of walking/biking trains in the complex.
Within a couple of minutes drive out the front gate, you are in a location surrounded by many fine dining and shopping areas nearby.
If you like a "life on Golden Pond " like experience then the cottages are for you. You cna rent bikes for as little as $18.00 per week or play golf on a variety of courses in Hilton Head, an area renown for World Class Golfing.
If shopping is your thing, there are two Tanger Factory Outlet Locations a mile or two away. We both agreed that this was one of the best vacations we ever had.
The rooms are comfortable and well appointed. You can rent even if you don't have a timeshare.
We will be coming back to Hilton Head often. Another reason to stay here is that a short less than a hour drive away is the picturesque city of Savannah Georgia. Rich in history and with numerous attractions Savannah is my favorite US City and ranks before New Orleans and San Francisco in my preference.
The dynamic duo of Hilton Head and Savannah makes staying in this area a terrific value. The beauty of both places will make this a memorable vacation spot for couples or a family.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The intimate setting at The Cottages is perfect for tranquil and lazy days where your biggest concern might be selecting a dinner location. Located on quiet cul de sacs, most of these timeshare units have golf course or lagoon views. Jump onto the bike path and let it lead you through the palmettos and around the 12 miles of bike paths. Discover the serenity of southern living in villas reminiscent of Key West bungalows. Charming porches set a relaxed scene as you gaze out over lagoons and golf fairways, and the lush Lowcountry flora that surrounds you in Shipyard Plantation. ... more less
